24/04 Look at how Paul Strand and Paul Outerbridge photograph objects and use lighting to create abstract shadows. Perhaps you could look at Laura Letinsky and pull back from your objects to return to the domestic setting.
27/03 Photograph different sets of objects: tools, food, gardening equipment over the holidays then choose your favourite set after holidays. Look in different school depts- Art, D&T etc.
23/03/18 Develop the ideas looked at in strand two. Photograph objects items that would normally not be given any artistic merit or attention and through interesting compositions and crops create a new meaning for the item. In turn bring some of the objects photographed into the studio with the aim of photographing them and giving them a new life as art. Consider where you want to do this is it an area that has been changed by man considerable such as tottenham ect
23/01 Mock exam piece: Huge task but it will be great when it's done. Keep going. DT technician made a great structure for you to hang everything off. Level 5/6
05/01/18 Consider the idea of creating a memory mobile with images printed on acetate and then hung around a light source with the aim of images and shapes being projected around the room in the style of Cornelia Parker.
11/12/17 Consider the way in which you are going to develop the project with a new focus on you 1) different representations of who you are 2) Old photographs taken of you old diary entry ect 3) what do others think about you who do they say you are 4) old videos that could be projected past,present future. continue with projection work but develop in different directions Potential link artist could be JR and look for a DNA artist.
6/11/17 Not sure if you still want to move away form literal recordings of the day to day. Take the photographs you have been directed to but then project these images into spaces, onto objects etc and re-photograph. These examples are not the right sort of thing at all because they are flat but both artists are concerned with combining objects, memories and portraits.
If you choose to look at a younger subject matter then you must consider the work of Rineke Dijkstra. Read this: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/27/rineke-dijkstras-portraits_n_1304744.html You could also look at her film, Krazyhouse (http://dcist.com/2014/04/popcorn_candy_ice_cream_pilgrim_edi.php). Watch these clips. The one on the right is in German but you get the gist
30/10/17 Develop the idea of environments further and look at photographing your Granddad focus on him and interesting items in his house. What are the stories behind the items. Look at past students Lois Dean for inspiration. Also look at Kaylynn Devney the day to day life of Albert Hastings. Also look at the selby.
Photoshop a few to resemble postcards- pick ones that you would expect to be postcards then use images that you wouldn't expect to be on a postcard- put the two impression next to each other.
Martin Parr's collection of 'Boring Postcards'. Alternative approach
Apply this to images of Tottenham-
create a juxtaposition between the different aspects
Alter the images that are pre- gentrification so they are unsaturated- look as if they are from the past. Increase saturation of post images.
Include text? even just when and where or OTT Wish you were here type of slogan
5. Combine Italy and London- are there any comparisons- visually, socially or politically? 6. Presentation: book or postcards in a rack
Target Grade: A Grade for set tasks: B Photography is good but make sure that annotation is more sophisticated. What bigger themes are the tasks addressing? Hw can you discuss www and ebi for subject matter, technique, concept etc?
Abstract bodies: Miguel Ribeiro, John Coplans and Minkinnen. Edward Weston and Bill Brandt (textures in particular)
Relationships within a family: Trish Morrissey, Tina Barney. Candid images of intimate relationships- Nan Goldin.
Semiotics and the meanings of words. Look at the work of Joseph Kosuth and the representations of a chair. Also Magritte's 'Ceci n'es pas une pipe and, finally, Michael Craig Martin's oak tree.
09/01 Continue to explore the abstract shapes that can be created with folded, scored and cut paper. Experiment doing this with the lighting gels instead of opaque paper. Photograph abstract colour composition, print on acetate and fold, light and photograph.
28/11 For the long exposure images: Arnulf Rainer. Expressive printing into images. Explore using wire wool and sandpaper: Amie Dicke
For the Jenny Saville response: Dots and patterns- look at the way Daniel Buetti uses dots to create text. What is beauty?
14/11 Powell Do you have a fourth strand or do you mean the first development of your preferred strand?
